Equality Impact Assessments

 

Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) can anticipate and identify the equality consequences of particular policy initiatives and ensure that as far as possible any negative consequences for a particular group or sector of the community are estimated, minimised or counter balanced by other measures.

Why undertake equality impact assessments?

As good practice EIAs are a way of analysing the impact of what we are doing on our service users and the wider community.

The benefits of impact assessments include:

  • Helping to identify whether we are excluding different groups from any of our services
  • Helping to identify direct or indirect discrimination
  • Assisting us in considering alternative policies or measures that might address any adverse impact
  • Helping to make equalities part of the day to day business of the council
  • Helping us to better understand the needs and aspirations of the diverse communities we serve

What is the end result?

Our aim is to improve our services to the residents of the Borough and visitors to the area.  We want to show that we have considered the potential impacts of a policy, strategy or plan at an early stage so that potential barriers or problems can be identified, avoided and appropriate actions put in place where necessary.

Working in this way will help us to ensure that equality and diversity considerations are mainstreamed into our decision-making processes.

Timetable for completing assessments

We have recently reviewed the template for completing assessments and will be drafting a timetable to ensure the EIAs below are reviewed in a timely manner.   If you have a query about EIAs please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
